I have been hanging out at Mustafa's too much. The fact that it is open 24/7 and only a 5 minute drive from my home is to blame. But I can't help it, it is such a terrific place to browse for kitchenware. Not as glitzy as Robinson's, Tangs or Takashimaya, nor as hardcore as those professional supply stores in Joo Chiat or Temple St; just a comfortable mix of both. There are plenty of cooking and baking tools, ranging from very cheap to very fancy-wancy WMF. Plus they have specialty Indian cookwares not available in other parts of this city.
Like this pan above, I don't know the name I'm afraid. But when I first saw it, I wanted it, and pretty soon I convinced myself that I needed it. For when I figured what to make in it. So I bought one, and it has been getting very comfortable sleeping in my pantry for what, two months now. Last week I finally got round to using it to make these little batter cakes with finely diced vegetables and roast pork bits, good to eat as a teatime snack. Looks similar to, but are not the same as takoyaki. The pan was fun to use though- it took some time to heat up but once it did, it retained its heat well and the cakes cooked evenly and brownly.
I am thinking of buying a tawa next. It would look more stylish than my boring old Tefal. And maybe also a murukku press,for when I ever get round to making putu mayam.
